Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Wise Men Seek Him Still

Wise Men Seek Him Still
Wise were the Magi who travelled so far to seek,
To see the King of which the Star did speak

That first Christmas they rejoiced to see that star,
It did guide them safely as they travelled afar.

The angels sang of a Saviour and God, Who was born,
And the Shepherds found Him that first Christmas morn.

It is of the Babe Jesus the star spoke and angel’s chorus did sing
He was born and died and rose again, Salvation for us to bring

O, let us seek the True Saviour, the Babe Jesus, Who loves us all
T’was for us, a Loving Saviour waits for us today on Him to call.

Every year I write little poem to go inside my cards (to my shame, I have yet to calligraph it in) - computer generated sadly - one day, God willing, I may be super organised .maybe do it in July or something as a template..mm, that's an idea now.. .
This was this year's poem and one of my brayer cards - see here for card method

My spiritual birthday (when I came know the LORD Jesus) is coming up soon (4th Jan) and it is very near here - down near the beach. It was through a Christian Beach Mission (CSSM - they were called) down at the beach where we were camping. We, little kids and then bigger kids, all went every year. I walked at this spot today, it is always special to me. You can see photos, etc. on this post here.
I started at CSSM when I was four, and still have my first prize book when I was four, it is called "God Loves Me"... and yes, He does! Sometimes we forget that God Loves Us - just the way we are - praise Him for His never-ending love.

His Love sent His only Son as a baby..and come let us come and celebrate this Love  - and if we have not yet been like the Wise Men, THEN let us seek the King - the King of Kings, the LORD Jesus Christ, let His coming not be in vain for you.

To each of my Wonderful Encouragers I want to say a huge thank you - you mean so very, very much to me - but not as much as you mean to God ....  and please never forget that. 

 I am thinking of another candy soon - maybe in some months to come, but when a certain milestone is reached, will let you know - may even give a whisper of it before hand ....mm.....maybe something to do with numbers.. perhaps?..

And last but not least a VERY Big welcome to the latest Wonderful Encouragers - I am calling her little Raindrop, and you will see why when you visit her blog - a newbie at blogging so do go along and encourage her. awesome felt work there - and also to Pauline another Aussie and English May at That Craft Place - so welcome  thanks for spreading a little Goodwill of the Season... 
Love, Peace and Goodwill to ALL,
Shaz in Oz.x

Shaz я благодарю за эти слова! Я благодарю Бога за спасение, которое Он принес в Его Сыне, за радость и счастье называться Его детьми. Спасибо Богу, что Он открыл нам эту истину о его пришествии и помог нам Его найти!!!
Моя дорогая и возлюбленная сестра в Господе, обильных Божьих благословений тебе и твоей семье!
Слава Иисусу за спасение!
С любовью, Вика.

Shaz, I thank you for those words! I thank God for the salvation that He brought His Son, for the joy and happiness to be called His children. Thank God that He has revealed to us the truth about his coming and help us find him!
My dear and beloved sister in the Lord, abounding with God's blessings to you and your family!
Glory to Jesus for salvation!
With Love, Vicky.
